After my dad left me in the parking lot one day because I thought he would patiently wait for as long as it took me to get to the van, I was never late again … but I seem to be regressing as once again here am I backtracking. So for the duration of this post, kindly pretend that I am still in Atlanta. 🙂
A somewhat unexpected trip led me to Zoo Atlanta:
As always my eyes first gravitated to the gorgeous flora that surrounded the entrance. Stopping briefly to take my first capture I was more excited than ever to see what else this place had in store for me!
A lovely African elephant
Poo Happens … but for these two Love is certainly in the air for these parakeets! P.S. I think they stole our flag 🙂
Hakuna Matata it’s Pumba the warthhog! 🙂
I kid you not, Sir Meerkat graduate from Posing 101 with flying colours 🙂
Lazy day! Could not for the life of me get him/her to look the lest bit excited to see me. I tried!

For a brief moment I was sure they were people sitting on the grass! Hmmnnnn
Asian Small-clawed Otters. Kinda creepy watching them but at the same time they looked a lil cute.
Joseph’s Coat Plant with other vivid foliage.
The Orangutans must have been sleeping when I passed by but their home looks rather cozy .. wonder if they would like to adopt me!
(Photo merge) Crawled into the secret lives of the naked mole rat. I was just as creeped out about seeing them as the 4-year-old kid beside me was and, well, despite my brave face it didn’t take long before I was running out of that exhibit (hence the blurry pic couldn’t look at it long enough to focus the short)
I do believe I stood at least 15 feet from the Kokomo Dragon…. I don’t care if it was behind a glass case… not taking any chances! As for the rest of that .. one can imagine how I made it through the cases of Snak…………….. *gasp*
Don’t as me what it looks like I have yet to see! But I assure you, it’s there 🙂
A cool display on animal trading.
Burmese Star Tortoises. Apparently the males are 1/3 the size of females. Manage to catch one while looking through this hole!
I want a pet panda 😀 PLEASEEE???!!!
My fav shot of the day .. well second .. that Lilly was a sight to behold!
Take a look at this ‘fierce flora’
White topped pitcher plant. They eat insects, frogs and even mammals! *Wonder what would hppen if I stuck my finger in there*
African Southern Ground Hornbulls have a life expectancy of 30 years,
And finally … I couldn’t resist saying good by,…. I NEEED those in my front yard. Absolutely beautiful! 🙂
Special thanks to Beth and Ed McGrath who took my sis and I here!
